A challenge

While I was at a spoken language poetry reading a few years ago, a guy mentioned that a friend of his managed to write a two hundred page novel without using the letter "e" once.  I didn't believe him at first, but when he read an excerpt from it, I found it to be astounding and clever.  The patience and perserverence it must have taken to write such a story is unimaginable, not to mention the time it might take.

So here's my challenge to you.  Write a short story (it can be as short as a paragraph or as long as a Steinbeck novel) below without using the letter "e" once.  That's the only restriction.

You'd be surprised at how creative you can get when writing with this constraint.  Have fun! :)
